    Skanderbeg reacted to guest050817 in Imam Mahdi a.s is probably mostly black by race   
    It is of the 12th Imam a.s, and indeed his race does not matter, but it is historically interesting to know. Furthermore, to those who decide to take up the erronous duty of actually drawing our imams a.s, they need to rectify drawing them all as arab-persians.

    I suggest we use this thread to expose suspect ahadith and histories that exist in shias' popular creed.
    Since I already have a couple ones on my mind, I thought I could start a thread and in sha Allah other members will help throughout time.

    The core of Shi'ism is good. It follows the right people appointed by Allah. 

    The problem are the Ghuluw minded elements that crept into it in time.

    While being a Sunni honouring the wrong people without defying them will still not erase the error.

    Salaam,
    The only thing I find 'abnormal' in your reaction is that you got upset. It's best to stay calm. If I were in your place, what I would have done is , I would have gone to the that guy, said salam or hello in a friendly way and asked him "It appeared that you were looking at me and my family? maybe you were confusing us for someone you know??"  then I would have a short chat on the lines of 'where are you travelling to?' asked about his work etc.
    Most people are not ready for such a direct reaction and are taken aback and not able to come up with a good answer. Good chances are they would stop staring after this conversation. It important to handle the situation amicably, never a good idea to get in a heated confrontation when you are with women and kids. 
    @zainabamy  I also ignore most people who stare, but when you are a man and and another man is staring at your wife and kids then its a different situation.

    In my humble opinion, your case is under the title "what is vain" and "vain talk"; the Qur'an says:
    وَ إِذا مَرُّوا بِاللَّغْوِ مَرُّوا كِراماً
    "and when they pass by what is vain, they pass by nobly" (25:72)

    Hhhmm, well I'd probably still say don't do anything unless this guy starts saying or doing anything inappropriate. I'm the kind of person who likes to avoid confrontation so I would only say something if the person was getting personal.

    Wa aleikum as salam,
    I think honestly the best thing to do is ignore anyone who is like that and stay silent. A few weeks ago I was sitting on a train and the couple in front of me just stared at me the whole time so I just read my book and ignored them. Its a really annoying situation but its best if you keep your cool and don't get angry because as Muslims we represent the aklaq of Rasuallah (sawa) and the Ahlulbayt (as).

    Skanderbeg got a reaction from Sol 7 in Problem with superstituous ahaadith   
    Salam, 

    Sometimes I hear about hadith which forbids yawning because satan will enter the mouth or always put two shoes or sandals on instead of one because that's the dresscode of satan, to not whistle with the mouth etcetera. 

    These things do actually make me think more about paganism and superstition than monotheism and rationalism. 

    A lot of ahaadith I still remember from my Sunni period but there are probably such ahaadith in Shia books as well. 

    Are these kind of ahaadith reliable or did they crept in in time?

    I fully believe in the islamic fundamentals which in my eyes are contrary to the beliefs of the ones above. 

    If one would say that it are beliefs of pagan and isolated forest-, desert or mountaintribes, or villagepeople from the heart of Trans-Siberia I would believe it immediately but it's hard for me to accept they are an integral part of islam.

    This also raises  the question on the knowledge of Allah swt that thy has created the creatures without the knowledge of their ending? and how much space in hell is needed to accommodate the people in hell fire?
    This hadith contradicts the verses quoting that Allah swt is best of creators and thy has the knowledge of every thing.

    i fully understand what you are trying to say and Alhamdulilah i condemn all for their wrong actions regardless of their beliefs. i condemn all those who are involved in the oppression and killings of innocent people regardless of their faith. 
    i`m not making a fuss about it. i would not asked you this question in the first place if you did not come up with that actual meaning of Takfeer. 
    And don`t think it`s all one sided because Sunnis too have a long history of persecution and being killing and it is going on even till this day. Do you know ISIS has killed many times more Sunni Muslims than all the other people they have killed combined ?
    just to be clear i`m not here to start a Shia-Sunni row. it was never my intention to add fuel to the fire and further divide the Ummah.

    The return of Nabi Isa a.s. either (proof given above) but ...

    The return of Nabi Isa a.s. is a Biblical narration and the Mahdi a mere Islamic one i.e. revealed in the time of Rasulullah s.a.w. plus the fact that he a.s. is a descendant of him s.a.w. 

    So why cling on more to a Judeo-Christian tradition than an Islamic tradition and a person who will lead everyone in prayer including Nabi Isa a.s.?

    I don't care if people disbelieve in Imam Mahdi a.s. I only do not understand their levels of priority.

    Is it lack of love for Muhammad s.a.w.? I don't know.

    Dear sister, 

    The foundation of Shi'ism is that succession of the Prophet is a Divine affair and that Allah appointed Imam Ali a.s. through Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. as his successor.

    The number of Imams, if imamate has to be an unbroken line or not and the matter of occultation are the diffirences that made the sects while the foundation of all Shia sects is one and the same.

    It's very common for people to randomly make something up, attribute it to some scholar, and then everyone else just goes with it without verifying anything.  Shias try to perpetuate bad things that have supposedly been said by Sunnis and Sunnis perpetuate things supposedly said by Shias, just to make the other side look bad.  But in the end, we all look bad.

    I believe this is correct.  Where as the Shia view is that "the Mahdi" is the 12th Imam.  The Sunni view is that "the Mahdi" refers to a person that has yet to exist, and someone that will come prior to the return of Isa (a.s.), and possibly prepare the world for his return.

    Thanks for the complement, brother!
    But I should say that it is one of the certain beliefs of the Shia that Imam Mahdi a.f.s. was born to Imam Hassan al-Askari a.s. in the year 255 A.H.
    Al-Kaafi narrates 6 hadeeths in the chapter “بَابُ الْإِشَارَةِ وَ النَّصِّ إِلَى صَاحِبِ الدَّارِ” one of which is as follows:
    عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْكُوفِيِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْمَكْفُوفِ عَنْ عَمْرٍو الْأَهْوَازِيِّ قَالَ: أَرَانِي أَبُو مُحَمَّدٍ ابْنَهُ وَ قَالَ هَذَا صَاحِبُكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِي.
    Amr al-Ahwaazi said, “Abu Muhammad [Imam al-Askari a.s.] showed me his son and told me, ‘this is your saahib [Imam] after me.’”
    The hadeeths in this chapter proves that Imam Mahdi a.s. was born.
    There is another chapter after the preceding one titled “بَابٌ فِي تَسْمِيَةِ مَنْ رَآه” which includes 15 hadeeths on the names of those who saw the Imams, one of which is the following:
    عَلِيٌّ عَنْ أَبِي عَلِيٍّ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ إِدْرِيسَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ أَنَّهُ قَالَ: رَأَيْتُهُ ع بَعْدَ مُضِيِّ أَبِي مُحَمَّدٍ حِينَ أَيْفَعَ وَ قَبَّلْتُ يَدَيْهِ وَ رَأْسَهُ.
    Ibraaheem bin Idrees narrated from his father that he said, “I saw him [Imam Mahdi a.s.] after the demise of Abi Muhammad [Imam al-Askari a.s.] when he was a child and kissed his hands and head.”
    So, the fact that Imam Mahdi a.s. was born to Imam al-Askari a.s. as the 12th Imam is out of question.
    Peace!
